That's what I'm gathering too. But i've already got a solution for that.

GSL-SE front suspension to convert to 4x114.

Then pull the rear axles and redrille to 4x114 out back. I am still looking for the donor car to lend the brakes and suspension for this one. After that I will order up the wheels and lower the car even more. I'm going to try for that Tuner/VIP look here. Should be interesting. Also RX-7 camber plates bolt right up so that makes life easier too. I hope the GSL-SE rotors are the same size up front because this car stops really well.


I have the same thing in mind for my green one.
Have you checked how the driveshafts look? If there is material enought to drill 4 new holes?

//Magnus

There is! The drive flange is huge! I got mine welded up and re-drilled to 5 x 120

Thanks for the compliments fellas. The car is definately different, but cool. It's got a bad rap because it's so heavy. Not a typical sporty Mazda.

They were heavy for their day, weighing 1200kg when Rx3's were well under 1000kg, but these days an econohatch weighs 1200 :shock:
I have mates with R100's, rx2s,3s & 4s and the 5 has a nice solid feel when compared. They all say it's ugly, but they know NOTHING :lol:
